I recently came across a website community for front-end developers and web designers called Frontends. The Internet is full of these forums and communities for developers and designers. So if you are interested in joining another discussion, Frontends is good choice.

The website layout is fairly straightforward. The discussions are separated by default with the most current date at the top. However, users are able to change the view and layout of the discussions. Some of the options users have for separating discussions are by top, new, best, digest, and daily. Frontends has many categories for users to select such as site design, CSS, WordPress, Git, podcasts, site feedback and many others. If you can’t find what you are looking for, you may also enter a topic into the search bar.

I noticed right away that users are able to share any topic by means of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google + and LinkedIn). However, in order to engage in discussion, users must either sign up or login to their account. Users are able to set up an account using Twitter or Facebook. They can also register with an email address. Users can sign up to receive the Frontends newsletter.

Frontends has a few guidelines that they expect all members to follow. They expect everyone to be kind and courteous to others. The main goal is to help others in the web industry. They have a few rules regarding posts. All posts must be web-related, avoid using all caps and a few other tips regarding how links should be displayed.

What forums or discussion websites do you use for web development or design? We’d love to hear from you, so please leave a comment!
